6 Ways to Look More Confident During a Presentation
FROM HBR Summary of article/post:
• Hold the ball. Gesture as if you are holding a basketball between your hands. This movement, a Steve Jobs favorite, displays confidence and control, as if you have the facts at your fingertips.

• Palms up. Turning your hands up indicates openness and honesty, and it shows that you’re willing to connect with the people you’re speaking to, whether it’s one person or a crowd of thousands.

• Pyramid. Keep your hands still by clasping them together in a relaxed pyramid. Beware of overusing this position or pairing it with domineering or arrogant facial expressions. The idea is to show that you’re relaxed, not smug

# 日本人はYesなひとびとで、不思議がられている。日本文化のなかで育った人が極端に人に好かれようとする傾向があるのは、同根で、嫌われることを異常なくらい避けると、ぼくには思える。

# ぼくの観察によると、日本は、宥和を破る人間を殺人犯や幼児強姦魔なみに憎悪する点で世界にも珍しい国なので、めんどくさいが、平たく述べて「嫌われる」ことになるよーです。

# でもね。それは日本の社会の側の問題で、きみの問題ではないのですよ。

# だから、日本の社会で人間として生きようとして、周囲に嫌われることを恐れてはいけないんだと思うのね。

Human conversational behavior | SpringerLink
Dunbar et al

Observational studies of human conversations in relaxed social settings suggest that these consist predominantly of exchanges of social information (mostly concerning personal relationships and experiences). Most of these exchanges involve information about the speaker or third parties, and very few involve critical comments or the soliciting or giving of advice. Although a policing function may still be important (e.g., for controlling social cheats), it seems that this does not often involve overt criticism of other individuals’ behavior. The few significant differences between the sexes in the proportion of conversation time devoted to particular topics are interpreted as reflecting females’ concerns with networking and males’ concerns with self-display in what amount to a conventional mating lek.
